I can't remember where I heard about this, but I grabbed it when I saw it in Poundland! And what a pound well spent.

A challenging read. Wordy and at times threatening to lose me, but well worth persevering with. Steiner writes with faith and passion and even when dealing with things I didn't know I cared about he pulled me in. My favourite chapters were those about animal, education and love in other languages. I think more people could benefit from condensing their ideas in this way, rather than filling entire books with rather stretched premises.

At times I was almost cheering at the thought that someone else out there shared some of the same beliefs as me. And I can sleep a little easier at night, knowing there are intelligent minds still out there somewhere keeping the flame of knowledge, unashamed knowledge alight!
